Inter still need to press on. Calhaoglu has been so good on his debut. Absolutely running the show.

An hour in and you can get the sense Inter need a third.

  • End of 1st Half
45' + 4 

It is half time and remains 2-0 to a dominant Inter side.

45' + 1 

Perisic scores emphatically and it is called offside. VAR checking...

45' 

Three added minutes. That was Kallon's second chance of the match. He also scuffed wide just moments after Skriniar scored for Inter, when I was having a typing nightmare!

44' 

CHANCE! Kallon hits wide after Darmian loses the ball and Skriniar slips. What a let off.

42' 

Sensi drives forward but his pass to Brozovic is poor and the move dies off. But Inter have been masters of the counter-press so far.

40' 

Skriniar meets Calhanoglu's corner. This time, his header is wide.

39' 

Darmian gets through down the right again, but Criscito denies him with a superb tackle.

37' 

Now Brozovic goes close after being found by Sensi. Inter have been so good today.

36' 

Sensi gets to the byline to meet a superb pass. His cross was cut out.

33' 

Sensi has been lively... a little too lively. He's just committed a foul and kicked the ball away.

32' 

So desperate for Genoa. They can't keep the ball and are panicking in defence.

30' 

Sirigu collects easily but Inter are continuing to push on in waves. A third goal only seems a matter of time.

29' 

Corner to Inter. Bastoni drives forward from the back and is denied by a last-ditch tackle by Vanheusden

28' 

Good move by Inter and Brozovic has volleyed just wide from an angle. Good effort!

26' 

The game has stopped for the coolong break. Genoa will definitely be pleased for the chance to regroup.

24' 

BAR! Dzeko chests Darmian's cross and swivels. Sirigu tips his shot onto the woodwork!

21' 

Rovella is looking good. He's a good, technical young midfielder who is heading for Juve, but he looks confident here. He's cleared a cross aimed for Dzeko.

18' 

Inter are so well drilled. Their defensive strength from Conte remains, but they've added an attacking verve with Inzaghi.

  • Milan Škriniar

15' 

Apoloigies for the radio silence in the last 10 mins or so, had some technical problems. Milan Skriniar gave Inter the lead and they've gone from strength to strength since.

17:29 

The teams are out, the anthem is blaring. Here we go!

17:17 

Just under 15 minutes until kick off! Inter have had a torrid summer. But Simone Inzaghi has the big job he deserves!

17:13 

Fans are back, Italy is flying after the Euros, what a season we have in store in Serie A!

17:06 

What of Genoa? A solid mid-table finish last season, but they've got a tough start tonight. Former Inter star Goran Pandev starts in attack at San Siro.

17:03 

Crucially, no Lautaro Martinez for Inter today, but Hakan Calhanoglu and Edin Dzeko make their league debuts!

17:00 

Inter may be the champions, but there is so much to wonder about them. Conte is gone, replaced by Simone Inzaghi. Lukaku gone, too. What can we expect from them? They've got much to prove.

16:57 

Here are your hosts, and the champions, Inter!
